ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team concluded day one of the Michigan Invitational Saturday at the Varsity Tennis Center with a win in doubles against Michigan and a win in singles against Georgia Tech.  

The Rebels started the day with doubles against No. 11 Michigan.  The team of Julia Jones and Zalina Khairudinova defeated UM’s Laura Ucros and Sara Remynse 6-3.  In a battle of two top 20 teams, Caroline Rohde-Moe and Marija Milutinovic (No. 20) fell to Brooke Bolender and Emina Bektas (No. 9) 6-2.

Following doubles, the Rebels took to the courts for singles against No. 20 Georgia Tech. Milutinovic was the lone winner, downing Nicole Murillo 6-0, 6-2 at the sixth spot.  Ole Miss had a chance to pick up two more wins, with the No. 2 and 4 matches going three sets.  Khairudinova, seeing her first action for the Rebels, lost a tough three-setter to Alexa Anton-Ohlmeyer 2-6, 7-6, 10-8.  Jones also dropped a tough match to Rasheeda McAdoo.  After dropping the first set 6-4, Jones rallied to win the second set 6-4, but McAdoo claimed the third set 10-7 for the win.

It was those close matches and sets that head coach Mark Beyers wants to see his team learn from as the season progresses.  

“We played pretty well in doubles,” Beyers said.  “Michigan is a top 10 team, especially indoors.  It was a very close doubles point which Michigan was able to win in the end.  In singles, we were unable to win any close sets or supertiebreakers, which turned out to be the difference today.  We have to have the confidence in ourselves not only early in the set, but at crucial points later in the set.  It is very early in the season and that is why these matches are so valuable. We can learn from our mistakes and get better each and every day.”

Ole Miss continues play Sunday with singles against No. 59 South Florida at 10 a.m. followed by doubles versus Georgia Tech at 1 p.m.   Fans can follow the action with live scoring and video by going to OleMissSports.com and clicking on the link in the calendar.
